. it's incredible so many are. it's no way to win an election. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 42 days until the 2012 election and eight days until the first presidential debate. president obama and millions of americans are calling on billionaire owners to get rid of scab refs and bring back the union workers. tonight i'm camming out mitt romney for attacking some other working professionals. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think governor romney and a number of folks try to politicize the issue and do a lot of teacher bashing. >> the president goes after mitt romney on education. and right on cue, mitt romney goes after the teachers. >> the teachers union has a responsibility to care for the interests of the teachers. >> former governor howard dean and atlanta mayor react to mitt romney's educated mess. >>> scott walker and paul ryan come out against union busting. eugene robinson and bill roden on why the nfl gets what it paid for. and on n
iran. we have factors put into place here. we're in a general election, and we have governor romney attempting to use the president's words against him regarding israel. i think it is important to note that benjamin netanyahu said under the obama administration these strict sanctions were pult into place, and they have worked. praising, if you will, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust as well, and he believes that action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was coming. we knew that the obama administration and netanyahu specifically did not agree necessarily on the future actions to take. it's been abundantly clear obama has not appreciated having his hand forced by netanyahu. netanyahu has absolutely realized that this is an election season, has been accused probably rightly so of manipulating certain parts of u.s. election system to what he perce
. just as one video seemed to have been the game changer in this election, the 47%er, we still have three debates coming up, where if mitt romney was to do a turn around, he has a chance, starting tuesday -- starting october 3rd in denver, wednesday -- where he has, i think, some of the few chances left to try and figure out a way to turn this around. to explain if there is an explanation for what he really want wants to do that will be more inclusive than that video sent. he has a few chances left if trend is against him but i'm not ready to call it yet. >> i have to say, it does seem over the last 24, 48 hours they do some very specific thing. he's getting out there more. he's been doing a ton of interviews. after all, the criticism early on that he was never there to be interviewed. let me play a little clip from yesterday. >> throughout this campailmpaig well. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in my state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people in this country than that kind of record. >>
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the
mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far right, but what's happening in the race? >> laser focus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a state president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i know i'm not going to get 100%. i hope to get 50 plus percent and make sure that i become the next president. >> talking about all those polls yesterday, mitt romney cited gallup and rasmussen, a coupl
as mathematically impossible. do you think mr. romney really thought he could fight this election by simply blaming the president but not having any content of his own? do you think that was his strategy? >> well i think that was his strategy. then he chose paul ryan and they claim to be fiscally conservative people but paul ryan's budget that mitt romney called a marvelous budget would not achieve balance for 30 years. so, they aren't even fiscally responsible. across the board, you know they've run a campaign that has blamed the president, blamed the president. they have no new ideas of their own. they simply want to go back to the bush agenda. more tax cuts for really wealthy people. putting an additional tax burden on working people. and looking down their noses in the most disdainful way, martin. >> yes. >> and i think mitt romney spoke from his heart when he talked about 47% of the american people basically being parasites. >> you are the psychologist, so only you can make a comment about that. but i'm so glad you mentioned paul ryan because he was on the trail to
walter mondale's people were blaming the polls back in 1984 a day before the election. the day before reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall
an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 people have been killed in syria. these are not bumps in the road, these are human lives, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of touch all the time. i would say a president saying that some of the problems in the middle east are "bumps in the road" is extraordinarily out of touch when you have a u.s. ambassador scraped off the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east in open, basically verbal warfare between their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gunned down by supposed allies every day in afghanistan. these aren't bumps in the road. this is an absolute mess. paul ryan's right, this does have the feel of tehran 1979. i'm not saying it's going to go that way, but you remember 1979 and the chaos that e
the significance of if he gets elected being the first mormon president. >> well, you know, i love the fact that we have the first african-american president, that that means to me that we're leaving prejudices behind. i would hope that if mitt were elected we would see more of the same. that prejudices are being left behind. >> i thought you said you'd like to see more of the first african-american president just to see -- >> no, get it right. >> if elected as first lady, what would your issues be? >> you know, of course ms, more awareness, breast cancer, more awareness. and if i have another disease between now and then, more awareness to that one. >> over the weekend, a private plane carrying mrs. romney had to make an emergency land manage denver after smoke was reported in the cabin. last night stephen colbert looked at mitt romney's reaction to the incident. >> on saturday, ann romney's plane had to make an emergency landing after an electrical fire broke out on board. i'm happy to hear she's fine. mitt used in this close call to present a bold idea. >> when you have a fire in an aircraft, th
with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> quickly, we want to talk about ohio, because "the washington post" on your battlegrounds you've moved ohio into the obama camp leaning obama because of the lead he's opened up there and that's obviously critical, the president going there tomorrow. we've seen. mitt romney and ryan were there just yesterdayp. >> >> just going to says the romney/ryan bus tour. we've spent time thinking about this whether to do it or not. ohio has been a central battleground and swing state in the last three or four elections. a poll among likely voters that has mitt romney down eight points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. o
is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are
, about 25% of voters cast a ballot before election day. it was higher in 12 major swing states. that's why you see urgency from both candidates this week. let's huddle up around the water cooler to marvel at the spread of not so much western democracy but of western fast food across the globe. sure we at home have the dairy queen bacon sundae. but the strangest fast food now overseas. seven he leven you might remember this one, singapore, mashed potato dispenser. shoots out a cup of mashed potatoes and gravy for just $1. those are not mashed potatoes. now pizza hut middle east is changing the stuffed crust game. >> fill us with more fun with the cone crust pizza filled with luscious cream cheese and honey mustard coated chicken, wrapped with fun, delight, and deliciousness. >> are we sure that's not an "s&l" skit. it is pizza with cone shaped dough filled with cream cheese and honey mixed with chicken. the chain also offer a golden crown cheeseburger pizza. a pizza size slab of dough with mini cheeseburgers baked into the crust. it create a crown encircling a bed of toppings and spec
